    I just ordered some Geiser's and am about to pull the trigger on Deaver +3.

    Does anyone know if I should set the Geiser's on mid or low perch? I want a level to slighty higher ride in the back, definitely nothing that gives it a Cali lean. I did read that both Geiser's and Deavers with settle a little.


    I have a SCAB and will be running a light wheel rack with one spare in the bed.

    I would advise not to use a perch mod with those springs. The springs will already give you a little over 2” and the deavers will give you about 1” in the rear which will pretty much level the truck

    On my 2013 SCREW, I had Geiser springs on low perch with +2 Deavers and at first it was slightly higher in the rear. Almost exactly the same height in front as it was with stock springs and mid perch. Over time the Geiser springs settled close to an inch and I was going to move to mid perch, but got 3.0s instead.

    You have to take into account the 3" factory rake. My Geiser's were closer to 1.5" in the front after settling on the bottom perch and from what I see most people that run them mid perch get 2.5"-3" raise in the front.

    @Daweism depending on how much rake you want I think you'll get the following results

    At bottom perch the rear will be 1.5"-2" higher in the rear with +3
    At mid perch .5"-1" higher in the rear

    Here is mine. Bottom perch, deaver +2 (OEM height) with a 1" drop shackle. Mine is almost perfectly level

    Makes sense. Gen 2 Geiser with a perch mod would be asking for trouble lol

    315/70r17 Falken but the Falkens run big. If I were to go mid perch +3 I would definitely go 37's

    Yeah I have 37 KO2 and Method's NV. Can't decide if I should start on low perch and let them settle, then move to mid if (probably) necessary or just install the Geiser's on mid from the start.

    The stance on your truck is the perfect amount of level to rake, the same look I'm shooting for.

    @Daweism I'd start at mid since you're going with the +3 deaver. I think your front and rear springs will settle together but mid will get you the stance you want.
